Vader briefly collapses after match in Japan
Posted: Apr 21st 2017 By: Dave Meltzer
There was a very bad scare earlier today as Leon White (Vader) fainted right after his match at Korakuen Hall in Japan.
It was the 45th anniversary of the debut of Tatsumi Fujinami (one of the greatest workers of all-time) in a six-man tag with Fujinami, Riki Choshu & Shiro Koshinaka vs. Vader, Keiji Muto & AKIRA. Vader passed out right after the match ended when Antonio Inoki was coming to the ring for a ceremony honoring Fujinami.
He was okay after a while and left the ring on his own, and was at a party put on by Fujinami and his family after the show several hours ago. He was scheduled for shows on Saturday in Fukuoka and Sunday in Osaka. We're not sure if he'll be able to wrestle on those shows or not.
It was believed he was suffering from dehydration, though Vader posted on Twitter that it was caused by being dropped on his head at the beginning of the match and claimed that it had nothing to do with the heart problems that he's been dealing with.
